Polymera has added 60 million pounds of WPC compound capacity at their central Ohio facility.
According to Polymera, the 160,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, located in central Ohio, houses a fully automated manufacturing system for wood/natural fibre polymer composite compounds. “Polymera is addressing a need for WPC compound that simply has not been available in the industry, until now,” stated Polymera’s Vice-President, Herb Hutchison. Polymera can provide technology assistance in addition to the WPC compounds. “Our objective is to help extrusion, injection and compression moulding companies that would like to enter the WPC market but cannot justify the very large investment in upstream blending and material handling systems.”
Polymera will be exhibiting at NPE2012 in Orlando, Florida, on the 1st – 5th April, and will be found in booth number 27045.
